Riva Greenberg has posted an excellent discussion on why some people do not want a pump, and prefer injections. That happens rather frequently. I am very glad I chose to use a pump, and that my insurance covers pumps and pump supply expenses. I have much better control, with fewer lows and highs since I started pumping eight years ago. I have not needed assistance with a hypo since July, 2007. A pump is the best choice, for me. It may not be the best choice for you.
